How to remove leading spaces from String in Cold Fusion

Hi,
I need to remove Leading spaces from a string in Cold Fusion. I've searched online and found examples for how to remove all spaces from a string, but what I need is to just remove the leading spaces.
In Perl this is simple, but I'm struggling here in CF.
Thanks!

Try using the regular expression replace function REReplace:

ReReplace("   test 123!", "^\s+", "", "ALL")

Remember that \s includes "Any whitespace character including tab, space, newline, carriage return, and form feed. Similar to [ \t\n\r\f]."
